don't think that's the road that we'd want to go down, and I thought

remember what it was.
We tried setting up something that would do it this way and I think the
amount of maintenance required is too high. I need to decide on
something (finally) so we're going to go with how meta.wikimedia.org
It works for wikis that don't have the absolute need for keeping
languages on totally separate instances. It's just as much editing work.
The only disadvantage is that page names aren't in the native language.
If this is a problem with anybody on the *infrastructure* side of
things, please speak now. I'll be talking to the translators list soon.
